RAPID CITY, S.D. - Four years after he was arrested for the 1975 killing of a fellow native activist, John Graham pleaded not guilty at his first court appearance Friday in U.S. District Court, a day after his last attempt at a Canadian appeal failed.
He is one of two men charged with first-degree murder for the slaying of Anna Mae Pictou Aquash on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation. Her body was found in February 1976 north of Wanblee with a gunshot wound to the head.
Update: Sorry about the last two post titles. Stoned on Zicam.
Update II: Just noticed that people have been yakking about this in comments here and at PB for roughly a week now. This "blogging" thing is harder than it looks.
